Out November 29, the A-side ‘The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise’ is the latest in a long line of covers (including versions by The Beatles and Duke Ellington) of Gene Lockhart and Ernest Seitz’s original 1918 composition, while B-side ‘Oh Babe, It Ain’t No Lie’ reprises Elizabeth Cotten’s ‘Oh Babe, It Ain’t No Lie’ from her 1958 Smithsonian Folkways debut.
